singing a new song

This morning ( do you get the idea of what I do in the early mornings?) I was studying a sermon transcript and was so blessed to consider that we can sing a “new song” Some of us have been singing it for many years now, but it is new every day as the Lord shows us greater blessings and opens new truths to our understanding. Salvation’s free glad joy to all of Adam’s fallen race/ We’ll tell to all both far and near of saving, keeping grace/ there’s joy, glad joy, now flowing from above/ There’s joy, glad joy, in the fullness of His love! No one can sing that song but the born again, dedicated, sanctified child of God!

And then later in my study, I found new thought on the concept of the harpers harping on their harps from the same texts in Revelation. Consider the scriptures: And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. And I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps.” Revelation 5: 8-9

And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. Revelation 14: 2-3

Since the odors are “prayers of the saints” (redeemed people), then the vial would symbolize the vessel which contains the odors. Perfect harmony existed between the redeemed souls, God, and the angels. This is symbolized by harps. When the child of God tunes his heart to the great heart and will of God, he is “harping on his harp.” Nothing is more music to the ear of God than a group of saints with their hearts and souls in perfect tune with the Word and Spirit of God. How necessary it is to keep our heart (harp) in perfect tune with the great heart of God! There must not be any discord, for it is easily detected, even as a discord on a literal instrument when one string is out of tune, it will spoil the music. Let us be sure our heart is in tune with God at all times. This is the secret of holy living. Praise God forever!

Isn’t that a beautiful thought!
